US Dollar: Senate Tax Plan Vote, PCE Inflation Data in the Spotlight

US Dollar: Senate Tax Plan Vote, PCE Inflation Data in the Spotlight

Talking Points:

  • Euro unlikely to find lasting driver in Eurozone CPI, German jobs data
  • Swiss Franc outlook unlikely to be altered by third-quarter GDP report
  • US Dollar looking to PCE figures, Senate tax cut vote for direction cues

Eurozone CPI takes top billing on the European data docket, with the headline inflation rate expected to have hit a seven-month high at 1.6 percent on-year in November. Meanwhile, the German labor-market statistics are expected to leave the jobless rate unchanged at 5.6 percent while Swiss GDP figures point to accelerating growth in the third quarter.

None of these outcomes seem likely to generatea lasting response from FX markets however. ECB policy looks to be on auto-pilot in the near term, severing the link between regional data flow and the Euro. A surprise SNB policy pivot isn’t out of the question but a single data point is an unlikely trigger, leaving the SwissFranc similarly disconnected from the usual fundamental news cycle.

Fed policy speculation returns to the spotlight later in the day. The US central bank’s favored PCE inflation gauge is due, with core price growth expected to rise for a second consecutive month – the first such feat since August 2016 – to 1.4 percent. Meanwhile, a Republican-led tax cut effort will be debated and ultimately voted upon in the Senate.

With a rate hike almost certainly priced in for December’s FOMC meeting, markets have turned to the 2018 tightening path as the central point of interest. Markets expect tax cuts to be inflationary, so the US Dollar is likely to rise if the Senate votes them through. The boost may be amplified if PCE data suggests price growth is already accelerating, before fiscal stimulus enters the picture.
